"The eye surgery campaigns are activities that allow the poorest populations and those who are farthest from the major health centers to have access to free eye care services. I am very happy, because scratching made me tired. I was scratching very frequently and it hurt. I am happy because I know that the products I got will help me get better."
Harouna Kaboré, care recipient. Harouna and his brother were among the many people who came to take advantage of a free campaign in the region in the hope of finding a solution to their eye problems.
"Before, I had problems with eyelid tearing, for example. After the training, I can do eyelid turnarounds without difficulty and diagnose certain eye diseases."
Daouda Kabré, nurse (training beneficiary). As Head Nurse of Doudou, Daouda meets daily with patients suffering from various ailments, including eye ailments. But at times, he found himself in uncomfortable situations, because it was difficult for him to diagnose the patient's ocular pathology, due to his lack of knowledge in this field. Today, Daouda is very proud to be able to help his patients.
